10 to northerly and it is clearing out and we have some really cold readings out there. a breeze helps some. 52-41 and walnut creek, we have some chilly readings and san jose is cooler than santa rosa. you can already see it, 27 in eureka and 32 in other areas nearby. high pressure is building and sun is coming out, it is a cold morning out there but it will be a little warmer he today. 60s for most. a couple of low 70s to near
